Re: MSU Coverup of Nassar

When it might've made a difference, Lyons supported Simon. Only after bad press comes out about him, he suddenly changes his tune. This is purely a political move on his part. He probably wants to run for another political office. What a turd. If this was his position from the get go, why wait so lo...

Re: MSU Coverup of Nassar

A cute statement? Oh, I disagree completely. I doubt Izzo has any reason to fear employment ramifications. That line of thought is silly. Could you imagine the protests on campus if he were fired over speaking out against Simon? If he voiced his dissent, it would be Simon looking for a new job, not ...

Tom Izzo is a piece of shit

Tom hopes "the right guy was convicted." He made this outrageously stupid comment after claiming to have listened to victims' courtroom testimony. He has "unwavering" support for Lou Anna Simon. How can anyone support such a despicable piece of human garbage??? Listen to her response around the :55 ...

Re: MSU Coverup of Nassar

Lou Anna Simon is a defiant, emotionless hag. This horrible ordeal doesn't seem to faze her even the least bit. She appears to have zero empathy for the victims. Listen to her bristly response to an excellent question asked by a reporter at the 0:55 mark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuTGL4VawyM ...

Re: MSU Coverup of Nassar

Tom Izzo's comments in post-game press conference when questioned about the university's response to Nassar and Nassar's victims were stunningly ignorant. Two key quotes from Izzo: "I hope they convicted the right guy." (Nassar pled GUILTY; how on earth could Izzo think there's even the tiniest chan...

Re: Podell to Nash 93.1

Please. Bankrupt Cumulus isn't going to spend that type of money.

Some of you have very active imaginations!

No one can touch Beasley or Entercom when it comes to male ad dollars.

93.1's best move formatically is to complement WDVD. Country does precisely that.

Re: MSU Coverup of Nassar

They're all sticking up for one another; it is sickening.

A lot of the Trustees have baggage and have ties to the athletic department. 'Nuff said.

How many have been in attendance in the courtroom? They are all sacks of shit, IMO.

Re: MSU Coverup of Nassar

Almost the ENTIRE campus community wants Simon gone. Individual students and campus organizations are damn near unanimous on that point, and I commend them for it! The Board of Regents and Simon herself (I'm not convinced she has female body parts) are 100% tone deaf. These assholes in power clearly...

Channel 7's auto show coverage

It is dreadful, absolutely unwatchable garbage!!! It is nothing more than an ass kissing session to keep their advertisers happy. Almost no content of substance.

The fact news talent is being utilized in a glorified infomercial capacity is embarrassing.

Re: Podell to Nash 93.1

My guess is Mr. Podell simply enjoys being on the air; I highly doubt he's doing this for the money at this stage in his life (unless he'll be assuming some corporate programming chores).

Income from a weekend airshift isn't going to pay many bills.

By the way, Simon is one hideous looking woman. She looks like a cross between Roger Ebert and Charles Nelson Reilly!!

Her personal convictions are even uglier than her gross physical appearance, apparently.

Re: MSU Coverup of Nassar

I agree completely. Simon's conduct has been sickening during this ordeal; ditto for the board of trustees. The AG or U.S. Attorney's Office need to commence an independent investigation. Sure looks to me like individuals within the university were complicit in a cover up. Extremely disturbing. Why ...

Obviously, my post of December 22 of 8:30p ET turned out to be incorrect. The billing numbers of WLUP and WKQX must be truly lousy!!!

Re: Cumulus debt restructuring proposal announced!

Excellent info; thank you! If a new deal between Merlin & Cumulus isn't reached (such an outcome seems unlikely at this point), Cumulus should just sell its remaining two Chicago stations. Hubbard, Weigel and Sinclair are all parties that would be interested, I would think. I think WLS-FM will be hi...
